Sample News Story

The following is a typically formatted news story:

Renewing US ties with Latin America, Obama says he wants to lead, not lecture, on democracy

by BEN FELLER, Associated Press - 19 April 2009 18:17 GMT

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (AP) -- Defending his brand of world politics, President Barack Obama said Sunday...

Both Graham and McCaskill spoke on "Fox News Sunday." Ensign was interviewed on CNN's "State of the Union."

Typically news organizations will have a significant amount of metadata behind this story, communicated in a variety of formats like NewsML. By the time they are presented to the reader, much of the metadata (amounting in some cases to hundreds of fields) has been stripped away. We can add a bit of that back in, and using hnews, create possibilities for some interesting semantic actions. Taking the above story, and formatting it as hnews:

<div class="hnews hentry item">
  <h4>
    <a class="url entry-title" href="http://example.org/article/us-latam-obama-democracy.html" rel="bookmark">
      Renewing US ties with Latin America, Obama says he wants to lead, not lecture, on democracy</a>

We get a richly-formatted news story that enhances the reader's experience with news:

Renewing US ties with Latin America, Obama says he wants to lead, not lecture, on democracy

by BEN FELLER, Associated Press principles - 19 April 2009 18:17 GMT

(AP) -- Defending his brand of world politics, President Barack Obama said Sunday...

Both Graham and McCaskill spoke on "Fox News Sunday." Ensign was interviewed on CNN's "State of the Union."

News Topics: Summits, ..., Government policy
People, Places and Companies: Barack Obama, ..., Hugo Chavez

Lat: 10.65715 Long: -61.483582

Geo Alternative

There are a number of options with how this information is formatted. For instance, rather than adding in a separate geo line, we could chose to do something proposed as an improvement on geo-brainstorming:

<p><abbr title="10.65715,-61.483582" class="dateline geo">PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad</abbr> (AP) -- Defending his brand 
	of world politics, President Barack Obama said Sunday...</p>

Which renders as:

(AP) -- Defending his brand of world politics, President Barack Obama said Sunday...

Naturally, a valid option (as discussed here) is to use the <span> element instead.

Sample News Story with essential hNews format

Taking the above story, and formatting it as hnews applying only required fields:

  1. hNews hentry
  2. entry title
  3. author
  4. source-org
  5. updated
<div class="hnews hentry item">
  <h4>
    <span class="entry-title">
      Renewing US ties with Latin America, Obama says he wants to lead, not lecture, on democracy
    </span>
  </h4>
    <div>
      <small> by 
	<span class="author vcard"><span class="fn" >BEN FELLER</span></span>, 
      	<span class="source-org vcard"><span class="org fn">Associated Press</span></span>  - 
      	<span class="updated" title="2009-04-19T18:17:29Z">19 April 2009 18:17 GMT</span>
    </div>
	
  <p>PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (AP) -- Defending his brand of world politics, President Barack Obama said Sunday...</p>
  <p>Both Graham and McCaskill spoke on "Fox News Sunday." Ensign was interviewed on CNN's "State of the Union."</p>
</div>

We get an hNews formatted news story that gives the same reader's experience but at the same time adds simple markup.

Sample News Story with Media (Photo)

Another example is combining this same story with a related photo by folding an hmedia item into the hnews entry:

<div class="hnews hentry item">
  <div class="hmedia">
     <img class="photo" width="256" height="342" border="0" alt="President Barack Obama speaks on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2009, about the release of Laura Ling and Euna Lee, the two freed American journalists who were arrested in March after allegedly crossing into North Korea from China.

     <span class="fn">President Barack Obama</span>
